HP HE members of the Tower 
Staff present to you the result 
of their labors. Their slogan, 
from the first, has been, the best 
book that they could produce. 

They have all worked — some 
more — some less — but take it 
all in all they have done their 
best, and this book is the result.

WE WILL pass out of college the largest ela>s that has ever called Stout its 
Alma Mater. 

During all of our college days we have striven for the highest ideals in learn- 
ing, skill, industry and honor, the things for which The Stout Institute stands. 
We have tried to pass these ideals on to the student body and we know we 
have succeeded. 

The Senior Class of n»L'."> will always exist in the minds of its members. 
It has been in existence too long for a day to dissolve it It has been too firmly 
cemented together with hard work and play to be blasted, by graduation. Crad- 
ualion cannot take from us the memories of our Chili Con Carne supper, nor of 
the farewell party given in honor of the January graduates. 

As Our work has been worthy in the past, so in the future we hope t«> Strive 
SO that it will be up to the standards of Stout Institute.

OH IT'S fine t<> be a Junior! No more hours! No more uniforms: !><> you 
wonder lhat the Junior class is growing bigger and bigger every year? 
This year's class has sixty-one members. 

It" our history were written il would take pages and pages, for it is made 
up of the Stories Of many individuals; some of us are just grown up sophomores 
while others have been "out in the field." The demand for degree students to 
till the bettei lis has induced the sophomores to remain and "grow up"" 

and others to return. 

In November we put on the first Prom of the season and also the first Junior 
Prom ever held in the school. The gymnasium was decorated in fall colors 
and pine houghs. The Sailor Six furnished the music and the time came all to 
soon for the party to vnd. Our other Junior parties were as successful as the 

Let next year as our Senior year, be one that Stout will long remember.

"f~\ UR PEP! Our pep! We gol it and we'll keep it! — we never will lose 
^S it!!"' As soon as we entered the Stout Institute last year we displayed 
our pep and class spirit as well as our scholastic abilities. We showed the 
upper classmen how to handle the rope in a tug-of-war, how to make a perfect 
dive, and how to pitch a winning ball in baseball. Members in our class became 
prominent in all of the organizations of the school and tiny did well all of the 
given to them. Our athletes were entered in all activities and worked 
hard to win a name and fame for their school. 

The summer vacation did nothing to lessen our amount of pep, and in the 
fall the class of '25 came back ready to go on with it's work. When the annual 
tugs-of-war for men and women were staged, we came out victorious over the 
Frosh both times. We showed our superior skill in basketball and swimming. 
Stout's line-up for football and basketball found a majority of the players who 
had begun their work here the preceding year. Our social functions stand out 
as happy get-togethers in which we all participate. The Sophomore party was 
a decided success and the Prom stood out as the '•affair" of the year. It came 
as the climax of two very happy and worth-while years. 

As the time draws near to leave Stout, we realize more and more what the 
days here have meant to us. and we resolve more strongly than ever, that the 
Class of L'.") will always remain together in spirit and that always we will strive- 
to further those ideals and standards set us by our Alma Mater.

Freshman Class History 

/ ~|~ s HK whistle blew, the brakes ground, and the train came t<> a dead stop 
-a Two hundred and fifty-four Freshmen, green as the grass on which they 
trod, stepped out on the platform of the Menomonie station. Tiny were, one 
and all beginning their career of college activities at stout Institute. The first 
few days were busy ones; lodgings had to be located, boarding places found and 
registrations recorded. A great deal of time was spent in inquiries such as: 

"Where is the H. E. building?" "'Where do we register?" •"What section are you 

in?** and etc. Finally every one of the two hundred fifty-four Freshies had 
found his place and was hard at mastering the rules governing a Freshman at 

The first number on the program was to get organized, for a great deal was 
overheard on the campus as to what happens t«> unorganized Freshies. There- 
fore, a class meeting was called under the direction of Mr. Thayer, class advisor, 
for the purpose of getting under way. A date was set for election of officers and 
prospective candidates were instructed t<> electioneer. On Friday September 26 
an election was held in the S.S.A. room with the following results. 

Byron L. Wood President 

WALTER C. Nil II K I : I \l> I drill 

Winfield Griffith Secretary 

Harriet Grass .Treasurer 

Curtis Sommerer Member oj Athletic Council 

Helen Gee Member of S.S.A. Social Committee 

The second in the annals of Freshman History was the Fresh man-Sophomore 
tug-of-war. This was far from a dry party for the green cap brigade, who through 
some misunderstanding, were forced to bathe in the "briny deep." 

Then on October 25 came the Freshman party which was a much more joyful 
affair. In the gym beautifully decorated with autumn leaves and Streamers of 
the royal red and green, a never-to-be-forgotten evening was spent in dancing, 
card-playing, and participating in mixer games. The party was chaperoned 
by Mrs. Thayer. Miss Frandson, and Mr. and Mrs. Hague. 

The Freshmen, undaunted by defeat at the hands of the Sophomores in the 

tug-of-war, challenged them to a game of basket ball. Here again they went 
down to a glorious defeat to the tune of 33 8. 

None the less the class of '26 is well represented in the many organizations 
of the school and its members intend to do great things before leaving the Alma

The Stout Student Association 

' I MlK Stout Student Association of 1924-25 lias continued the work so well 
■*• started by the officers of last year. The Secretary and Treasurer were 
elected at the close of the previous year and were familiar with the work of the 

The organizations holding membership in the association are Men's Glee 
Club, sharps and Flats. Manual Arts Players, Lyceum, Stoutonia and the 
Athletic Association. 

The election of the President and Vice-President was held at the beginning 
of the fall term. Lloyd Benson and Kathleen Hughes l>ciii£ chosen for these 

The Association sponsored the I <»_' l-_'."> Home- Coming. The week-end was 
an unusually busy one. Friday evening the Home-Coming dance attracted 
many. Saturday was filled with a pep assembly, banquet, parade, football 
game and a matinee dame. \i nine o'clock the bonfire and general wet-down 
dosed the affair. Many old "grads" returned and tin- S.S.A. hopes that each 
year will find many more returning to renew friendships, and to make new 

The S.S.A. has given dances for the entire student body. These dances 
were mixers and were always enjoyed l>v every one. 

The Association regulates student activities by scheduling all weekly events; 
endeavoring in this way to prevent conflicting events or dates of the societies 
and classes. 

The officers of the Stout Student Association wish to thank the Faculty 
and the student body for their splendid support and cooperation in carrying 
OUt the duties and purposes of the association. It is only with this cooperation 
that an organization can he of value to the school and so to you.

The Hyperian Society 

THE Hyperian Society has for the last two years been studying social wel- 
fare work. To Miss Bisbey, our faculty advisor, we arc grateful for in- 
spiration and help in the work. 

Active interest was created within the society last fall by the adoption of 
a "Hyperian Daughter," Margaret Tischman. Much of the work of the organ- 
ization consists in planning and making clothing for this daughter. The annual 
Christmas party contributed much to the enjoyment of the society.

The Philomathean Literary Society 

'T A HE purpose of the Philomathean organization is to cultivate and further 

-■■ the interest of it's members in literature and the arts, and to develop social 

interests. Membership in the organization is limited to thirty, and i> based 

on scholarship and character. 

Philos are responsible for the origin of the student donations to the Stout 
Student Loan Fund, and each year plan to contribute a sum to that cause. 
Some of the events planned for the raisin," of money toward the student fund 
were; the hot-dog sale at the Home-Coming game, the Christmas dance and 
the Christmas candy sale. The year 1924-25 has been the most successful in 

furthering the aims of the organization. 

Early in the year plans were made to serve a breakfast to all present and past 
members of the Philos, who were in Menomonie for the Home-Coming. The 
Bandbox, arrayed in blue and while was most inviting, and the <jcl-to-<jether 
was truly appreciated by the new as well as the older members. It was voted 
at that time to make the affair a yearly one. and to include another similiar 
event in the years program at Commencement time. Plans were made to 
circulate a round-robin letter among the members in the held in which an ac- 
count of the work of the society would be given. Each member is to add a few 
notes about her work and plans, the letter to be read at the Commencement 

During the past year, the programs have included a study of prominent 
Home Economics women, important writer> of European countries, political 
conditions in countries most affected by the war. and demonstrations of etiquette 
for formal parties.

The Square and Compass 

THE Square and Compass, an intercollegiate masonic fraternity, was first organized at 
Washington and Lee University in 1«17, From this one organization the fraternity grew 
until we now find it represented in almost every state in the Union. The masonic men 
oi stout had long hoped that a chapter oi J Ids organization could be installed in the school. A 
petition wae sent in asking for a chapter and on December 21, 1923, Carl A. Foss. now national 
president, with the help of some of the brothers of Madison installed the Stout Square. 

Since the installation of the Square, the members have done their utmost to promote Bcho- 
lastic, athletic, and social Interest oi the school, cooperating with the faculty and student body 
in any undertaking for its betterment. It is hoped that the standards set by the Square in the 
past will carry on in the future, thus proving its value to the Institution as an organization.

The Stout Band 

■\I7Trn only fifteen old members to start the year, our band has grown until 
* * its numbers are about thirty, and its work is of the highest order. Se 
lection <>f new members was made on the ability basis and although some were 
dropped, it is hoped that eventually they may be with the organization. 

Much credit is due our director Mr. J. E. Kay. who through his untiring 
efforts has developed the band into its present form. Otis Saeter, assistant 
>>r has also helped us greatly and we regret Ids departure. 

Tin- band boys have endeavored to serve the school in every way. by turning 
out to each and every athletic- event during the season. A movement was 
started by the band to secure uniforms, and it is hoped that by next year the 
Organization may be equipped. The band extends its thanks to the student 
body for the support given during the year.

Scene from "The Romantic Age" 

Presented April, 1924 

THK Manual Arts Players, the only organization of its kind at Stout, was 
organized in 1920. The purpose of the ciuh is to further dramatic inl 
and develop among the students a taste and appreciation for the best in drama. 

The fourth year finds the club one of the leading :ations of the school, 

and a member of the Stout Student Association. 

The success of the club has been very largely due to Miss Klein's untiring 

efforts. Miss Klein resigned at Christmas time to resume her dramatic training 

in New York. The Manual Arts Players were most fortunate in securing as 

director. Miss Dolliver. who is interested in promoting and guiding the activi- 

of the club. 

"You and I." a Harrie production was presented Nov. 11th. under Miss 
Klein's direction. "The Intimate Stranger-." a three act comedy by Tarking- 
ton, was given March 6th. A final play was given in May. which concluded 
the work of the Manual Arts Players for the year.

THE Stoutonia Staff has charge of the printing and circulation of the Stout- 
onia, the school newspaper. The Staff is composed of thirty-seven mem- 
. who belong either to the editorial, business, mechanical or machine com- 
position staff. Mr. Hague and Mr. Fields act as Faculty Advisors. 

Many changes have resulted from time to time during the year. The staff 
has tried to make a better organized, and more interi hool paper. The 

purchase of a new press has made possible one of the biggest changes that the 
Stoutonia has undergone. With better facilities for work, a bigger and better 
paper has resulted, and many favorable comments have come to the Staff. 

Aside from the regular work of the Staff, there is some social life, when 
are held. These are always much enjoyed by all. 

The aim of the Stoutonia Staff at all times is to portray Stout life, and to 
produce a paper that expresses the spirit of our school.

The Mechanical Staff 

npHK Mechanical Staff is the crew that performs all of the- mechanical oper- 

'■ with the production of the Stoutonia. It is com;, 
of a continually changing personnel of students who arc specializing in print- 
mg, and who may later be responsible for the publication of a school paper as 

a part ol their duties as printing instructors. 

I he value of working on this staff is unlimited because of the practical 
shop-like conditions and also from the viewpoint of an ideal trade project 
Each Student terminates hi> term of service as foreman of the stall, which g 
him an opportunity to take the full ibility of producing the paper for 

issues. The spirit of the workers is tine, and many long hour. 
spent in the priru->hop for which little or no appreciation is awarded." With- 
this group of "willing workers" there would he no Stoutonia. and much of 
Its success may be directly attributed to their efforts.

The Inky Fingers 

Till: Inky Fingers is one of the youngest organizations at Stout, having just celebrated 
its first birthday. Organized in the Spring of 1024 the club exhibited a remarkable activity 
during the remainder of the year. The opening of the fall term found only three or four 
of the old members present to carry on, but through their efforts the club enjoyed a hearty 
growth in membership and at the close of this year boasts a score of live supporters. 

The organization originated and exists for the purpose of encouraging and promoting literary 
talent among students. The need of such an opportunity is keenly felt in a school where the 
regular curriculum demands that the greatest stress be exerted in other lines. 

Any student may become a working member with the Inky Finders, but charter member- 
ship is conferred only upon those who by actual contribution have demonstrated their literary 
ability to the satisfaction of the charter members. Such recognition entitles the member to sign 
the constitution and wear the insignia of the club, a miniature gold quill. "Once a member, 
always a member," is a ruling adopted by the Inky Fingers to take care of its members who 
from time to time leave Stout to enter upon their professional duties. A special officer, The 
Paper Knife, acts as a corresponding secretary to keep in touch with these non-resident mem- 
ben. Of the several prizes offered for the best contribution along each phase of literature, one 
prize is awarded to the most active non-resident member. 

A portion of the organization's work has been presented in printed form, appearing in three 
editions as a supplement to the Stoutonia. The last number of "The Inky Finger Supplement 
to the Stoutonia" contained the prize winning productions for the year. 

During the past year the members enjoyed several social gatherings of which the Christmas 
parly, given by Miss Skinner, is especially worthy of mention. These functions, together "with 
i In regular weekly meetings in the Pigeon Hall, presided over by the Ruling Pen with the as 
sistance of the Blotter, Fountain Pen, Paper Knife, and Index, will always be cherished memories 
of every Inky Finger.

Motto — Always After It. 

OX SEPTEMBER 8th, 1924, at 1003 -.end Street a group of fine college 
lads gathered one by one, forming that Clan known as "The Bachelor 

The first week was spent in getting adjusted in our new quarters and members. 

A few of the characteristics of the members may be gained from the fol-

ALTHoniH H'-l produced no championship, fans in general and most 
Stout students in particular agree that the season was well worth while. 
The season was remarkable for the hard fought contests and the unusual even 
matching of the teams. Stout's goal line was not crossed in live games while 
two defeats were ed by a single field goal. The line proved unusually 

dependable as would be expected of these veterans. The backfield although 
new. showed great possibilities and should go far next year. Much of the 
success of the team was due to the untiring assistance of Mr. Mitten. Mr. I'ladoes 
and Mr. Jackson. These men with no thought of reward other than their love 
for the game were responsible in a large degree for the moulding of line team 
work and morale. With the introduction of the three year diploma course, the 
character and quality of football at Stout should be greatly improved. The 
support both financial and moral of the administrative heads as well as the 
student body at Stout could not be better. Although we are at present handi- 
capped both in the matter of practice as well as a playing field, this will be 
provided as soon as the opportunity presents it-elf. 


In the opening game of the season, Stout met unexpected strength in the 
heavy Third Infantry team of Fort Snelling. and were forced to the limit in 
order to win 3-0. Excessive heat, coupled with the fact that this was the first 

- 144 - 

game of the season, is believed t<> 
have kept down any spectacular play- 
ing. Early in the first quarter. Cher- 
mack scored a field goal after which

own territory. In the third quarter.

;t in the fourth quarter simply 
bewildered their opponents with a 
shower of forward passes and placed 
the ball on their twenty-five yard 
line. Klink then sent the ball living 
squarely between the uprights and

the fire in the last minutes of play. 
It was a remarkably well played 
game by both teams and only the

with victory 3-2. 

Although outplaying Winona Teachers College for three quarters of the 

game, Lady Luck seemed to have her favorite picked for the afternoon and 
did nothing but frown on Stout's attempt to score. Winona made their winning 
tally in the first quarter and Stout repeatedly brought the ball within scoring 
distance, their efforts to negotiate a field goal were unavailing. At one stage 
of the game, the hall struck the cross-bar, hung for a moment, then fell back 
into the playing field. Another time the goal was missed only bv inches. Hoth

teams showed best on defense, the visitors making but a single down while 
Stout had to depend upon the aerial attack to gain ground. 


Opening the Conference season at home with Stevens Point Normal. Stout 
tore through the line, sprinted around the ends and completed a number of 
passes, finally putting the ball within scoring distance. Two short savage 
plunges then drove the ball over after which the goal was kicked. At no time 
did Stevens Point threaten except in the first period when two passes put the 
ball on the local's ten yard line. Held for downs, the visitors attempted to drop

With a 7-0 Lead Stout played the game sale in the last half, Anderson's fine 
punting keeping the visitors deep in their own territory. 


STOUT l<> 

In a game which produced thrill after thrill. River Falls. Conference Cham- 
pions, were able to snatch the game in the closing minutes of play. Four penal- 
which netted the visitor fifty yards in the last quarter put the hall within 
kicking distance and Stout went to defeat Hi- 10. It was a remarkable 
uphill battle for the blue and white. At the very beginning of the game, ;. 
fumbled punt and a bad return kick enabled the visitors to register a field goal. 



In the second quarter, a short pass was converted into a touchdown after which 
the battle resolved itself into a stubborn contest. With the score 10-0 in the 
final quarter. Stout brought the crowd to their feet by staging a terrific come 
back that early resulted in a field goal from the sixteen yard line. Taking the 
ball on the kick off. Stout again worked it consistently down the field through 
excellently executed passes and end runs. Capt. Olson was then brought back 
the line and the State Champion's line crumbled. With the score tied 
10-10 and time rapidly drawing to a close. River Falls worked the ball to the 
Stout thirty-five yard mark. An over anxious sub then drew a fifteen yard 
penalty and the Champions scored a field goal from the twenty yard line. This

dramatic closing of the game, brought to an end one of the most successful 
Homecomings ever staged by Stout Institute. 


Two intercepted passes, a completed pass and a straight plunge for a touch- 
down, proved a stumbling block at Superior and Stout went down to defeat. 
As fur as Stout was concerned it was an off day. The line failed to hold or to 
open holes, and the backtield could not get started. Moeller at center and 
Klink at defensive full, single handed stopped over half the plays. It v. 
wierd game, with a team no better than ours showing decidedly superior. 

I.. Guard 



With defeats on two successive Saturdays, even the- most hopeful of Stout 
backers expected nothing but an overwhelming defeat at the hands of St. Mary's. 
The Catholics, rated as one of the best teams in the Minnesota Conference 
had an imposing record of success. Stout, however, was equal to the occasion 
and not only stopped the onslaughts of their opponents, but threatened them 
as well. Anderson's splendid punting had much to do with the scoreless tie as 
had Klink's judgment at quarter. He handled the team with consummate skill, 
taking advantage of every break and made every move count. Althougl 
M:iry's made twice the number of downs as Stout did, they were halted at critical 



moments, the line working perfectly. Only once was Stout in real danger and 
that was in the third quarter, when, with the ball on their own four yard line, 
they braced and held for downs. Although the game did not end in victory, 
both teams were well content to call it a draw. 

Baseball 1924 

A L THOUGH not ranking high in the percentage column, Stout placed a 
-**■ baseball team in the field, thereby rounding out a complete program of 
athletic activities for the school. Continued cold weather handicapped the 
development of the team, much of the practice being held in the Armory. 

(lames with River Falls Normal. I. a Crosse Normal and St. Marys College 
were scheduled and although these opponents were able to take the lion's share 
of the victories, yet the contests were interesting throughout. 

In Haesslv. Coach Brown had a dependable pitcher who was able I 
two out of three of his games. Only three letter men of the previous year were

THE season of 1924-1925 did not prove t<> be a record breaker. The slippery 
old bird "victory" favored us in the early games but as the season wore on 
sin- shyly evaded perching herself on the pinnacle of The Stout Institute. 

The first call for candidates showed an imposing array of basketball ma- 
terial. The promptness of the first response and the determination with which 
they worked showed the faith which they had in their captain and justified the 
loyalty which the student body showed to the team. 

Captain Setter played his usual stellar game throughout the season. He 
was a threat in each game and was considered one of the best forwards in the 
conference. Much credit is given to each and every member of the team. The 
cooperation and fighting spirit which they showed throughout the season ex- 
emplifies the highest type of athletic sportsmanship. On our second squad we 
find men of unswerving loyalty to the school. The truth of this fact was demon- 
strated by the untiring efforts each man displayed throughout the season. 

The prospects for next year arc exceptionally bright. The loss of a few 
regulars will be keenly felt but their places will be filled by men equally able 
to uphold the honor of StOUt, and under proper tutorship should and will produce 
a conference winner.

The li«l of the L 924-25 hoop season was officially 
pried open by the non-conference game at Winona, 
with the Winona State Teachers College, leaving 
stout on the short end of a 17-16 score. The 

first half ended in a tied -(ore of 10-10. During 
the last halt" Stout displayed a defense that Wi- 
nona could not solve. A rare feature of this game 
was the fart that the State Teachers had only one 
technical called against them although they had 

fourteen (fiances to

and within twenty seconds the Minnesota five 
had registered the first field goal. They dis- 
played a brand of passing which had not been 
seen on this floor, for some time. Their con- 
tinued scoring left Stout at the small end of a 
9-17 score at the end of the first period. In 
the second half Stout came up to its usual stride 
and kept the fans on their feet throughout the 
remainder of the game. Gustavus then tried 
long shots but wire unable to score even from 
a close range, the final score being 19-25 in 
Stout's favor.

In a hard fought game Stout downed the

both teams the game wa> exceptionally free 
from fouling. Much credit must be given the 
Luther players for their speed and fighting 
qualities and their exceptional weaving offense, 
in spite of the fact that they lacked somewhat 
in si/.e.

In a fiercely contested battle with Eau Claire Normal. Stout lost its first 
conference game. The game started in with great speed on both sides. Stout 
had Eau Claire baffled on their defense and broke up their pa>>es time after 

time. Eau Claire however was capable of 
taking advantage of the smallest open spot no 
matter where it was. At the end of the first 
half the score was 9-10 in Normal's favor but 
later was tied for some time, and finally ended 
18-16 in Eau Claire's favor.

At this time Superior counted from the center

Meeting River Kails Normal in the rival game of the season, on the home 

floor, Stout lost with a score of L'l'-Ki. Brown's men were clearly oil style that 

evening which fact was utilized by the visiting forwards. A special train 

^^ . brought a hundred and fifty rooters from River 

^SMk ■Jtf^v Va\U which added a great deal of /.est to the 

game. The armory was packed half an hour 
before the game was called. Both crowds showed 
true sportsmanship and this spirit was aided by 
operation of the cheerleader. 



February 6 25 - 23 

At I'latteville Captain Setter led Stout to a 
victory of 26-23 over the Normal team. With 
a wonderful weaving offense Stout penetrated 
their opponents' defense and by the end of the 
first period led by a score of 16-7. In the latter part of the game Platteville 
took on reversed form and occasionally sifted through with a neat shot, graduallv 
creeping up in their score. When the game ended Stout held a two point lead.

Throughout the entire first half Stout quintet 
was able to hold its own by clever passing and 
battling so that neither side had a big advantage, 
the score being 9-10 at the end of the first half, 
with Stout in the lead. The second half was 
even more bitterly fought than the first, each 
team surging ahead for a small lead. Chermak 
played his usual style and Stopped the Normal's 
forward rushes again and again. Cleberge, 
Captain of the Normal crew, sank four field 
baskets from the deep center in the last few min-

In one of the fastest games of the season on 

the local floor. Superior Normal defeated StOUt 
by a score of 1">-1<>. this being another one of 
the many which have been lost by one or two 
points due to the whims of luck. Both teams 
started in with a strong spurt and soon Stout 
had a four point lead. Superior then displayed 
a neat assortment of offensive plays which helped them to be ahead in the score 
which was 11-8 at the >:n(\ of the first half. During the rest of the game both 
teams played fast and strong which kept the >o>rc >ee-sawing back and forth. 
When but one minute of play was left. Setter counted from the field giving 
Stout a one point lead which in turn was followed by a basket by the Superior 
team giving them the victory of the l(i-l."> score.

Perhaps one of the most exciting games of the season was witnessed by tin- 
number of rooters who accompanied the team to Kau Claire, when Stout regained 
the game lost to the Normal here. At the end of the first half the Eau Claire 
quint was ahead with a 10-11 score. The Stout five then came on with a of- 
fensive drive but the Normalites were able t<> -core bringing the score to II to 
17 which was soon tied by Stout. Then for a period the game seemed to be 
anybody's as there were ties at 19, 21, 22, which of course kept the rooters in 
tense excitement. From then on Stout*s superior playing was beyond their 
opponents and Stout came cut safe with a _'_' :<< 30 score. 

February 27 21 26 

Playing the last game of the season the Stout quintet lost a bitterly fought 
game to the Plalteville team. The Normal team was forced to play an uphill 
game as Stout started fast and at the end of the first half was leading by a score 
of 10-6. Both teams came back with increased speed and the guarding was 
exceptionally close so that long shots were resorted to on both side>. During 
the greater part of the last half both teams were scoring so the game seemed 
to be anyone's. Toward the end a long shot from the side proved successful 
for the Plalteville quintet and another basket encouraged by the first, led them 
to victory.

Gym Team 

SHORTLY after the Christmas holidays, the first attempt was made by 
Coach Miller to kindle interest in this years Gym team. A good number 
answered the initial call for candidates. The only veterans in the squad were 
Terhell. Hardy and Rider. 

The entire team gave several home exhibitions which showed that Stout 
was again represented by a Gym team of high rating. 

On March 7th, the team entered the Northwest Gym Meet at the University 
of Minnesota and made as good a showing as could be expected considering that 
they were competing in the college ehiss. ite this fact Stout placed 3rd 

with a percentage of $(5.2. Besides this Stout placed two men in the medal 
class, Terhell taking seventh place and Rider ninth. 

Much credit must be given to Coach Miller for his efficiency in shaping raw 
material, year after year, and placing them high in the percentage column. 
The performance of the Stout Gym team during the past five years has bet 
a high standard, winning the cup in 1021, second in 1922. and has never been 
below third.

During its thirty-four years of development, some half do/en events stand 
out, each marking B great and abiding faith in the future of the school and the 
kind of education which it pioneered. Hecause of Senator Stout'< keen interest 
in industrial training. Mcnomonie was the lirst city in the United States to provide 
Olganized and systematic instruction in Industrial and Household Arts in all 
grades of the public school, from kindergarten to the High School. The 

ess of this local experiment led inevitably to the creation of a school to 
train teachers to carry on similar work in neighboring communities. In 1903 
the Stout Training Schools were organized, and Dr. Lorenzo Dow Harvey, just

his unusual

many years he travelled widely, taking into all sections of the country messages 
of the work done at Stout, and building up for it a reputation of leadership in a 
new kind of education. At Mr. Stout"s death, what had been a privately en- 
dowed and controlled institution became, in 1912 a state school offering at 
first a four year course and. from 1017 on four years of instruction, leading to 
. B.S. degree. The enrollment of students increased from 25 in 1903 to 566 
in 1924, and representing practically every state in the Union. In June. 1922, 
Dr. Harvey died. A year later Burton E. Nelson became President, bringing 

to the school the same 
staunch faith in industrial 
education which had led 
him years before to put 
into the Racine public 
schools the first indepen-

Ante Stout Institute History 

IN I'HK fall of 1898 Mrs. Martha L. Cowll was called to Menomonie, i<> become 
the kindergarten and primary supervisor and instructor. Slu- was a grad- 
uate of Teachers' College, at Indianapolis and had a number of years experience 
as a faculty member of that school after her graduation. It was the desire of 
the late Hon. James A. stout and of the Hoard of Education that a kindergarten 
and a primary training school should he organized in Menomonie. So in the 
autumn of 1899 the call for students had brought in eight young women, all of 
whom were graduates of high schools or colleges Of the state. 

The tirst class was graduated in June 1901. Life certificates were issued 

them by the Stale Department and they began teaching at once. This class 

consisted of: 

Elsie \V. Dangers, now Mrs. ('has. H. Kircher, Ogden, Utah. 

Stella II. Devereaux, now teaching in Idaho. 

Mary Khrhard. now teaching in Menomonie. 

Edith M. Fitzgerald now of Eau Claire. 

Marguerite A. Grannis, now Mrs. J. P. O'Malley of Hatfield, Wisconsin. 

Blanche A. Ring, now Mrs. Y. A. Hunt/.inker of . 

Edna B. Thomas, now Mrs. Adam J. Airis of Eau Claire. 

V. Wilson, now Mrs. A. K. Walrath of Chippewa Falls. 

Tlic school grew in strength during Mrs. Cowll's supervision. It> graduates 
found enviable positions all over the country. 

Then Mrs. Cowll left the school to enter a home- of her own. leaving Miss 
Alma Binzel and Mrs. Mary I). Bradford to continue the work. Tin- Stout 
Schools then turned their attention towards establishing the Manual Training 
and Domestic Science departments, and the kindergarten work was left to the 
two Normals of the State-.

If all the pictures were placed on a single sheet, it would he nine feet long and

If the pages used in printing the book were placed end to end. they would reach 
from Menomonie to Eau Claire, and pari way back. 

The staff worked approximately 10S0 hours preparing the material. This 
would be 135 eight hour days for one individual. 

The cost of the book including the expense of having photographs made, ex- 
ceeds $3,000.

The Menomonie Section 

(Editor's Note) 

This section of the Tower is paid for by the more progressive business men 
of the city, who believe that it is the best form of advertising that they can 
have. We have no doubt that this is so. and that direct returns will follow the 
publicity. The section is worthy of having a place in the book and is well worth 
reading carefully. We ask the students to carefully scan the list of nanus. 
Give them your patronage and make them know that you appreciate their 
interest in our book and school.

Menomonie and Its Advantages 


Pholo by B flair Studio 

MENOMONIE, home of the Stout [nstitute, claims marked advantages 
from many view points. Not only is it known throughout the country 
as a city of educational initiative, but it is commanding increasing attention 
for other excellent reasons. It is noted as a city of good homes; a city about 
which revolves the life of a rich, progressive and promising agricultural com- 
munity: the center of almost unlimited water power, developed and undeveloped; 
a city which holds forth exceptional prospects to the manufacturer: favored with 
splendid transportation facilities, it invites the attention i interested in 

distribution: located upon the banks of the Red Cedar river and lake Menomin. 
and surrounded by a beautiful countrv in which abound streams that are well 


stocked with fish, it is in the heart of a paradise for the disciples "f [saac Walton, 
while the fertile prairies and restful valleys within easy distance are a lure alike 
to the home seeker and the tourist. 

Among the industries which support this thriving community, agriculture 
must be accorded first position. Originally a part of a threat timber district 
and the seat of tin- operations of the famous Knapp. Stout and Company, lum- 
ber manufacturers. Dunn County has gradually evolved into one of the richest 
farming areas in Northern Wisconsin. Dairying is the line of farming that i> 
most favored and a tour through the districts contiguous to Menomonie in- 
variably surprises the traveler by the character of the farm homes which it 
reveals. According to the latest a>sessment the equalized property valuation 

If) I 


Pkolo by Belli r Studio 

Dunn County is $51,418,658, the greater part of which is on the farms which 
have Menomonie as their trading center. 

The latest figures available show the value of the dairy products shipped 
from Dunn County to be $5,200,000 for one year. Wisconsin is known as the 
greatest dairy stale in the Union and Dunn County ranks fourth among the 
seventy-one counties in the state in the output of butter, the output in one 
year being 8,000,000 pounds valued at $4,000,000. In Dunn County there are 
eighteen creameries, each contributing its share to the reputation Wisconsin 
butter enjoys for quality throughout the world. The combined output of the 
three creameries located in and near Menomonie. namely those operated by the 
New Hudson Road. Rusk, and Downsville Co-operative Creamery Companies 
last year reached the enormous amount of 3,300,000 pounds of butter. The 
cash receipts of these three plants for the year amounted in round numbers to 
Sl..->()().()00.00. Dunn County has seven cheese factori . making approx- 

imately 1,000.000 pounds of cheese annually. The increase in the number of 
tine dairy cows has accounted for the banner years in production, there being 
45,100 dairy cows in Dunn County, 20.000 of which have C.T.A. records. 

Because of the great number of pure-bred and the high grade dairy cattle 
owned within a radius of eight miles of the city the John Wildi Evaporated 
Milk Company a few years ago selected Menomonie as the location of its newest, 
largest, and the finest milk condensary. This splendid plant was opened in 
the spring of 1917 at a cost of $250,000. It is now owned and operated by the 
Xe>tle*s Food Company. Its success was instantaneous and it has become the 
market for an ever-widening territory with a capacity of 150,000 to 200,000 
pounds of fluid milk a day or a daily output of 1,500 to 2,000 cases of factory 
product, necessitating normally the employment of 150 to 200 persons, no 
small industry of itself, to say nothing of the activity involved in producing the 
raw material. 


Pkoto by Btlair Studio 

-Many farmers are now interested in the raising <>f pure bred cattle and the 
county has become famous tor its pure-breds. Local breeders have been known 
to pay as as $15,000 for one animal, brought here with the purpose of 
improving the stock o! this vicinity. The breeds most favored are Hob.ein Guernsey. Jersey, Ayrshire, Shorthorn. Hereford, and Brov, S 
I he high quality and high production of the dairy cows of Dunn County were 
demonstrated at the National Dairy Show. Cows from Dunn County won first 
in the grade Guernsey class of the Cow T< Usociation work. In calf club 

work Dunn County made among the largest number of winnings. 

Dunn County ranks first in the number of silos and first in corn production 
among the ten counties in Western Wisconsin. It is also first in potato pro- 
duction. ' ' 

Dunn County ranks among the rirst in the northern part of the state in the 
amount oi hogs and corn produced. Due to the splendid climate, warm soil 
and favorable weather conditions corn grows, matures, and yields much better 
than in some oi the counties farther to the East and South. Ik-cause of the 
abundant growth of corn, many hogs are produced. The leading breed* of hots 
are the Duroc jersey. Poland China. Chester White. Berkshire, and Hampshire 
Sheep do very well in the vicinity of Menomonie as the soils are well drained 
and afford splendid grazing. Shropshire. Southdown. Hampshire and Ox- 
fords are the leading breeds. 

While there has been a constant and consistant raise in the value of farm 
land about Menomonie the community is fortunate in that it has experienced 
no artificial inflation, such as has characterised the period following the war in 
some sections. Consequently the lands are not over-encumbered and there is 
room ahead tor a healthy development without a setback. While lands in the 



Pkolo by Btlair Sludio 

immediate vicinity of Menomonie bring B good price there are many oppor- 
tunities for investment with a prospect of discharging any reasonable indebted- 
ness within a few years. 

Wisconsin as a whole in 1924 achieved the distinction of being one of the 
most prosperous states in the Union, and official record- show that Dunn County 
has surpassed in material progress the average county of the state. This is 
well proved in the actual value of the land. In 1911 the average value of the 
land in Dunn County was $34.25 per acre. In 1921, the average for the county 
was $92.50 per acre. In 1922. the average for the entire state was $44.25 and 
in 1921, it was $83.00 an acre. 

There are other thriving industries in Menomonie closely linked with agri- 
cultural interests. One of these is the Wisconsin Milling Company, operating 
a plant originally owned by knapp. Stout and Company, but which has more 
than kept pace with the progress of the times in methods of operation and 
mechanical efficiency since the old lumber days. The Wisconsin Milling Com- 
pany interests itself in the growing of the best quality of grains in the surrounding 
territory and gives every encouragement to maximum production per acre. It 
affords a tine home market for local grains, but this being a dairy country it 
dqes not depend on local production for its supplies, but ships in large quantities 
of grain from western markets for its use. Its mill in Menomonie is the third 
largest mill in Wisconsin, having a daily capacity of <»<)<) barrels. In addition 


to wheat Hour it manufactures a full line of cereals as well as special dairy products 
and handles feeds, coarse grains and hay. The company has capital slock of 
si 7."). 000 and carries forty employees on its pay roll, which amounts to S40,000 

Another important local industry depending upon agriculture for its material 
is the Menomonie Milling Company. This company manufactures high grade- 
pearl barley and other barley products. The Menomonie Milling Company has 
capital stock of $31,000 and an annual pay roll of £13.000. Its daily capacity 
i- 12.") barrels. 

The Menomonie Green House has been operating for twenty years and is 
noted for its splendid service and the quality of its product. Design work, cut 
flowers and plants, shrubbery, vegetables and bulbs are the most important 
lines of horticulture carried on by the manager of the plant. 

The Menomonie Nurseries were begun during the past two years. The 
purpose is to supply the surrounding country with hardy, homegrown straw- 
berries, raspberries, black berries, and other small fruits, and with plum trees, 
apples, cherries and other trees. Menomonie offers splendid climate and soil 
conditions for the development of a large and prosperous nursery. 

Underlying the western part of Menomonie and adjacent lands are vast beds 
of clay of the highest quality for the manufacture of building brick. Three 
large concerns are engaged in the manufacture of this product, namely the Hy- 
draulic-Press Brick Company, a corporation which has many yards throughout 
the country with headquarters at St. Louis, Mo.; the Excelsior Brick Company, 
and Wisconsin Red Pressed Brick Company, both of which are owned by local 
capital. Those companies have a combined capacity of about 30.000,000 brick 
a year and employ upwards of 200 men at high wages. Menomonie brick have 
a reputation throughout the Northwest for quality and they are frequently called 
for in specifications for important buildings in several states. It is believed 
that the local clays are suitable for other important products and excellent 
returns are promised to capitalists who may be interested in the manufacture of 
articles for which Menomonie clay beds would supply the raw material. 

Another important industry is the cigar factory of Anderson Bros.. Inc. 
This company is capitalized at s-10.000, has thirty-two employees and manu- 
factures approximately 2,000. OOO cigars annually. Its plant is the largest cigar 
factory in the northern half of Wisconsin. Associated with this concern is the 
A. B. Leaf Tobacco Company, having a capital stock of $50,000, of which $31 .000 
is paid in. It started business in 1020 as packers of leaf tobacco with warehouses 
in Barron, Wisconsin. 

Unique among the industries of the city is the Litnum Bronze Company, 
manufacturing a special bronze, the composition of which is a secret. The 
company has a fine factory which is now turning out acid-resisting valves for a 
corporation located elsewhere. It executes orders for bronze castings for other

companies which require a metal <>f unusual strength. The Company is capi- 
talized at si. oo(i. olio. Fifteen men are now employed. 

About the beginning of 1022 the Forster Foundry Company was incorporated 

taking over the business of the Aetna Engine Works. This company is capi- 
talized at $10,000, doing a general foundry and machine shop business which 
employes on an average eight skilled men. 

The Holland Piano Manufacturing Company, of which George B. Norris of 
Minneapolis is president, has a highly successful factory in Mcnomonie which 
stands as a monument to the progressiveness of the business men of the city, 
inasmuch as the industry was located here through the activity of the Menomonie 
Commercial Club. Through the enterprise of present and former managements 
a large business has been developed, the factory now having a daily capacity 
of fifteen pianos. Only high grade pianos and player pianos are made here. 
The Company has a capital >tock of $200,000 with an average annual pay roll 
$125,000. The normal working force consists of 150 operatives. 

The Menomonie Dairy Company is operating under the management of 
H.J. Yigels in the manufacture of ice cream. Beside doing a general dairy busi- 
ness, the output of ice cream manufactured amounts to about 50.000 gallons 
a year. 

In addition to the above, Menomonie is the home of two well-equipped print- 

- 196 - 

ing offices, one of which issues the Dunn County News, the largest weekly 
newspaper published in Wisconsin. 

In retail lines Xenomonie is acknowledged one of the host cities of. its size

habitants of other cities and villages, being attracted by the complete, up-to-date

Surrounded by so productive an agricultural area and with local business 
places in so flourishing a condition, it naturally follows that banking business 
should make a splendid showing. And such is the case. There are three banks 
in the city, the First National, the Bank of Menomonic. and the Kraft State- 
Hank. The capital, surplus and undivided profits of the institutions total the 
sum of $496,343.10. The deposits of the three banks aggregate $4,123,248.02. 
These are figures taken from the statement of March .'{. 1923. The gain in de- 
posits was $459,102.63. There are two Trust Companies, one of them being 
the Trust Department of the First National Bank, the other the Security Loan 
and Trust Company. They are capitalized for $100,000 !«> administer wills,

It > proximity to the great railway gateways of St. Paul and Minneapolis 
and to the rail and water terminals at Superior and Duluth. together with its 
short haul from the mineral and timber districts of the Northwest, gives Menomo- 
nic unusual advantages in obtaining raw materials as well as in getting its 
products to market. It is located on two great railway systems, the Chicago. 
St. Paul. Minneapolis and Omaha (comprising part of the Northwestern s\ - 
and the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul, about sixty-seven miles easl of St. Paul. 
The earnings at their stations here of these two roads are indicative of the vast 
volume of trade which centers at this point. In recent years the total amount 
of freight received approximated 200,000,000 pounds annually on which was 
paid about $290,595.69. The total amount of freight forwarded is annually 
about 148,000,000 pounds, on which is paid $178,929.13. The ticket sales <>i" 
the two roads approximates $79,705.87. The combined earnings of these lines 
at Menomonie is therefore in round figures over $549,000 a year. 

Included in the transportation facilities of the city and county must be men- 
tioned the improved highway system that is now being developed. Four Fed- 
eral Aid Trunk Lines pass through the city, one known as No. 12, and one as 
No. 116 running east and west, and the others No. 25, and No. 70 extending 
north and south. No. 12 is the State's most direct and best highway connecting 
Chicago and the Twin Cities. No. 25 forms part of the shortest route between 
Southwestern Wisconsin and the cities at the head of Lake Superior. Another 
Federal Trunk Line No. «>4 cut> across the northern part of Dunn County east 
and west. Besides these arteries of interurban traffic the county is developing 
a system of good roads with Menomonic as the center.

The City oi Menomonie is under the Commission Form of Government, 
governmental affairs being in the- hands of a mayor and two councilmen. How 
well the people arc satisfied with this system was indicated in the fall of 1920, 
when by an overwhelming vote the electors decided not to return to the old 
aldermanic form. The city has several miles of well paved strcrts. a line White 
Way System in the business district, and many imposing public and private 
buildings which give the place a metropolitan asp< 

Anion" the public buildings may he mentioned the commanding structures 
which form the home of The Stout Institute, a Federal Building, the Mabel 
Tainter Memorial, a beautiful stone edifice presented to the city about thirty 
years ago by the late Capt. Andrew Tainter. which contains a completely equipped 
theatre, public library, rooms for the G.A.R. and W.R.C.. amusement rooms. 
dining rooms, etc., available for public use; Masonic Temple, County Court 
House. City Hall, etc. 

The total assessed value of all property in the city is $6,028,915. Total 
personal property assessed at $1,428,555. The commission keeps taxes down 

t.. as low a point as is consistent with good service, the rate being among the 
lowest known for cities of the same class in Wisconsin. 

The city maintains a fine public hospital at which the charges are made as 

nable as possible. It owns several parks, in addition to which are a beautiful 

parkway along the lake frontage, another along Wilson Creek Boulevard, and 

other pleasure "rounds along the lake and streams, owned and controlled by the

students and visitors in the summer months. 

The Menomonie Country Club, organized two years ago by a group of pro- 
gressive citizens who realized the advantages of such an asset to the city, now 
enjoys a splendid nine hole golf course of incomparable beauty. Situated a- it 
is one mile from the city, on Federal Highway No. 12 and State Highway No. 
79, on the banks of Wilson Creek and surrounded by virgin pine with a scat- 
tering of white birch, the location is ideal. The level contour of the land makes 
for a perfect course and the efforts of the players are not jeopardized be© 
of rolling or hilly ground. The level fairways are practically unbroken e 
for an occasional ravine, well sodded, or a tiled drainage area, will covered. 
Par for the nine holes is M\ and the several '"pros*" who have played the C< 
have commented upon the difficulty encountered in getting below a forty, which 
none have been able to do. It is not an easy course on which to get a low score, 
made so by the well trapped velvety greens. The total playing distance is 
:;_'_'() yards with 510 on No. 3 the longest, and 234 on No. \) the shortest distance. 

The spacious, well appointed Club House, is situated directly on the banks 
of Wilson Creek in a setting of virgin white pine, which arc at once the envy of 
all who know Wisconsin in the days of its lumber industries. The Club House 
is provided with dressing and lounging rooms for men and women, showers, a 
pro and caddy room, a well equipped kitchen, a large dance and dining hall 
which has on one side a lire place of sufficient size to hold hugh pine stumps and

screened porch surrounds the entire bouse on three sides of each floor. The 
Country Club is available for use by visitors of Menomonie through various 
avenues of approach and students of the summer school of Stout Institute have 
the privilege of its use through arrangements with the school authorities. 

The spiritual requirements of the community are provided for by eleven 
different churches, as follows: Congregational. Unitarian. Roman Catholic, two 
German Lutheran. Kpiscopal, Methodist Episcopal, German Methodist Epis- 
copal, Baptist, Norwegian Lutheran and Evangelical Association, all of which 
have substantial church homes. Several have commodious parsonages. The 
pupils are filled with men of ability and the auxiliary organizations reach out into 
the community life in a way to greatly extend the church influence. 

Surviving the war, the Dunn County chapter of the Red Cross maintains 
at Menomonie an office from which is conducted an active and useful home 
service, including a system of help for service men in handling their problems. 
a county visiting nurse, etc. 

In Company A, I2X Infantry. Wisconsin National Guard, Menomonie has 
what is recognized as one of the best guard companies of the State. Its size, 
attendance, spirit, and performance have repeatedly been commended by the 
highest officers of the state. Credit for the company is given to Capt. Gustav 
A. HitZ who took charge, when the unit was practically dead and built it up 
to the leading company in size in the state. Membership in the company is 
now maintained at the maximum number of 93 men and three officers. Drill 
is held weekly on Monday evenings and school is held once a week for all men 
who wish to receive further instruction in preparing for advance grade and

guards for the hand concerts each week. 

Hosford-Chase Post No. 32, The American Legion, was organized in Menom- 
onie in August, 1919, and has been active ever since. The present membership 
is 1 16. In conjunction with its Auxiliary Unit, the- Post maintains club rooms 
at the corner of Main and Broadway , where visiting Legionnaries arc welcome. 

The Post CO-operateS With other organizations in various civic welfare move-

showed assets of over $7,000.00, including a dancing pavilion costing $2,800, 
Club Room furniture costing SI. 000, and cash in various funds amounting to 
over $3,200. 

A school nurse is regularly employed in connection with the public schools, 
so that, with the health and poor departments of the city government the needs 
of the people in these respects are well provided for. 

Menomonie by its last census, has a population of 5,104, but in appearance, 

enterprise and business activity it is ahead of most cities of its size. 

Its position as county seat of Dunn County makes it the official as well as 
the geographical and commercial center of the county. A circumstance which 
illustrates the importance of the city in relation to the surrounding country, is 

- 20I - 

the fact that ten rural free delivery routes emanate from the Menomonie post- 
office, a number Larger than any other county seat in Wisconsin can boast. 

Representing the commercial, industrial, civic and social life of the com- 
munity is the Menomonie Commercial Club, an active body of about !'.">(> citi- 
zens whose endeavor is to make Menomonie a better city in the four lines in- 
dicated. The club is housed in the handsome Masonic Temple, and its quarters 
are a convenient gathering place for many movements seeking the betterment 
of local conditions. The club is ever alert to welcome the newcomer and a 
function on which it prides itself is that of seeing that Menomonie is known as 
"the city of the square deal." 

As Menomonie's fame, however, rests most largely upon its wonderful 
educational facilities, a review of its school advantages will be of particular 

The Public Schools 

EMKRSOX said, ''Every great institution is the lengthening shadow of a 
great man.'' The truth of Emerson's statement is well illustrated here in 
Menomonie. For it was Senator Stout's position on the Board of Education 
of the Menomonie Public Schools that the shadow look shape and grew into 
the present Stout Institute. It was to the Public Schools that Senator Stout 
first turned his attention and it was in them that many of his progressive idea- 
were worked out. There is still reflected in the Public Schools much of the 
early progress which was developed when ideas new in educational thought 
were put into practice here. 

The schools were organized along the lines suggested by the best modern 
practice into a senior high school, a junior high school, the intermediate and 
elementary grades, and kindergarten. The senior high school comprises the 
10th. 1 1th and 12th grades and has about 300 students. The junior high school 
comprises the 7th. 8th and 9th grades and has about 250 students. 

The course of study in the senior and junior high school are organized around 
the five major fields of educational interest, namely: English. Foreign Languages, 
Science, History and Mathematics. In addition to these, vocational work, 
manual training, home economics and commerce are also taught. Opportunity 
for work in music and the line arts is also offered. The music work deserves 
especial mention. Under the direction of the present director the work has 
reached a high degree of excellence. The school maintains at a high standard, 
a band, an orchestra and glee clubs for both boys and girls. A pupil with musical 
ability will find opportunity and encouragement to develop his talent. 

The junior high school program is arranged to give the pupil a large number 
of comparatively brief contacts with the field of education. In other words it 
proposes to give the students a sample of each subject that the senior high 
school has to offer. With this experience the student can enter the senior high 
school, knowing in a way his likes and dislikes, his special abilities, and with 
reasonable freedom of election select those lines of work which suit his interests

best. Especial mention should be made of the exceptional opportunity for 
work along lines of manual training and home economies which is open to the 
high school students. All the facilities of Stout arc- available for this work. 
giving it a range and equipment far beyond that found in the average public 

As proof of the quality of the high school work we point to the fact that the 

high school is on the accredited list of the North Central Association of Colleges. 
This rating allows its graduates to enter without examination any college or 
university in the 18 states comprising the Association. 

The first six grades are housed in four buildings distributed over the city so 
that no child is far from a grade school. With the completion this year of the 
new building in the Third Ward, all grade school buildings will he modern 
structures, embodying tin- best features of up-to-date school house construction. 
The- usual grade program is carried out by the regular grade teachers, who, in 
each of tin- subjects of music, art and physical training arc assisted by a specially 
trained supervisor. The health of the children is carefully guarded by the schools. 
A graduate nurse is a regular member of the teaching force. She visits each room 
practically every day. Contagious diseases are detected promptly and epi- 
demics prevented. Defects of eyes, ears, teeth and throat are discovered and 
recommendation for correction made to the parent. Undernourished children 
are detected and with the approval of the parents are given one feeding of milk 
each day at school. In addition, especially undernourished children are formed 
into nutrition classes which meet for dinner one day each week. Correct foods 
are emphasized at this weekly luncheon. In Menomonie parents can send their 
children to school with confidence that their health will not be jeopardized; 
rather that under the careful supervision the child has a chance to grow not 
Only mentally but physically. 

On tin- whole Menomonie Public Schools arc- a decided credit to the city. 
They could be better schools: in fact a virile public sentiment will make them 
better schools each year. The spirit of Senator Stout still lives in the- hearts 
of the- Menomonie citizens. And always their public schools will spell to their 
boys and girls the one big American word. Opportunity. 


St. Paul's Lutheran School 

N CONNECTION with the general school we>rk. the St. Paul's Lutheran 
congregation, consisting of :><><) families, has considered it> highest duty to 
impart a liberal education in a Christian spirit te> the younger generation. For 
this purpose it has conducted for many years, a well organized parochial school 
of eight grades. It is the aim of the teachers to make the pupils entrusted to 
thei/Vare. healthy-minded by developing originality and by teaching activity. 
To this end the mechanical end is discarded to a certain extent, and the learner 
is given a clear understanding of the principles from which reason and judg- 
ment make the application and constitute the rule. 

The present school building was constructed in 1904, and it is a fine and 
very complete edifice. The teachers are normal graduates and have had many 
years' experience. 

St. Joseph's School 

AS EARLY as 1890 the members of the St. Joseph's parish, Menomonie, 
had felt the necessity of providing for a parochial school which was to 
give adequate religious training as well as secular instruction to their children. 
The rather modest frame building on Ninth street, lirst used for school purposes. 
soon proved insufficient and a good brick school was put up in 1901. This in 
turn was found n«> longer to answer the nerds of the growing parish, and the 

year 1912 saw the erection of the new St. Joseph's school facing Tenth Avenue. 

The parish school as it stands today is architecturally speaking, without 
doubt, <>ne of the finest school buildings in the city. It is a solid brick structure, 
two stories high and is modern in every way. The four class rooms are fully 
equipped throughout. In addition, the building contains a beautiful chapel, a 
society room with a kitchen attached, and a roomy basement with all modern 
facilities. Special attention has been paid to the tine heating and ventilating 
systems enjoyed by the school. 

The annual attendance varies between IK) and 125 pupils. For almost 
thirty years the members of the well known Teaching Community of the Fran- 
ciscan Sisters of La Crosse have had charge of the School. 

While the system of education followed at the St. Joseph's school aims at 
the symmetrical development of the religious and the moral sense together with 
the mental faculties of the pupils, every effort is being made to secure for them 
all-round, complete, well-balanced, up-to-date, elementary education. By har- 
monious and sympathetic co-operation, wherever possible, with the city schools, 
St. Joseph's school has been fortunate enough to make arrangements verv bene- 
ficial to its pupils. A special feature of this plan consists in this, that the children 
of the seventh and eighth grades spend one entire afternoon each week under 
the supervision of the Stout practice teachers. The practical results achieved 
by the children in both manual training and domestic science have been par- 
ticularly gratifying under this system of co-operation with Stout Institute. 

The present teaching force of the school consists of four teachers, namely: 
Si>ters Julitta, Gerald, Maura, and Mericia: the pastor. Rev. A. J. Dorrenbach. 
of St. Joseph's church, acting as principal. 

Dunn County Rural Normal School 

THIS school is one of the thirty-one training schools in the stale maintained 
for the training of teachers for teaching positions in country schools. It 
tits young people, largely from the rural sections, for those positions graded and 
ungraded up to the principalship of state graded schools of the first class. (Irad-

uates of these schools arc accepted after reasonable experience in all public schools 
where state certificates arc not required. 

The Menomonie School was one of the tirst to be opened in September, 1899, 
being only a week younger than the oldest school of this type. Since ii- 
tablishmenl it has graduated 771 teachers. The number of teachers in the 
country from these graduates, usually run one hundred or more each year. 

It is equipped with a strong faculty of devoted teacher- who are specialists 
in the several lines of work laid out for them. In many cases special training 
and preparation having preceded appointment on the faculty. It is well equipped 
with apparatus including a cameragraph for moving pictures and a Stereopticon 
for lantern slide-. 

It maintains a one-year professional course for graduate- of four-year high 
schools. This consists of professional reviews with methods of teaching in the 
fundamental subjects taught in the elementary schools, together with courses 
in Theory, Pedagogy, Observation and actual teaching under expert guidance 
and supervision. Upon completion of the required course, certificate is issued 
to the graduates. It may be of one or two grade-, second or first, depending 
upon the grade or quality of work done in the course. These certificates qualify 
for three and five years respectively, with plans for renewal without cxamina- 

- 20; - 


tions by meeting conditions for professional improvement during the life of the 
certificate. The first grade is practically a life certificate on the plan of renewal 
for five year intervals. 

On September, 1924 there was opened in connection with County Normal, 
the Bowman Model School, which furnishes adequate opportunity for all to 
observe demonstration of methods and to do practice teaching under the most 
favorable conditions possible. This school is the out-standing feature of the 
work here and has already become firmly established. The building is thor- 
oughly modern in every particular and in equipment, and is fully adequate for 
every need. 

The Normal is housed in a special building situated in the midst of the 
Stout group. The rooms are cozy and comfortable, inviting the home spirit on 
every hand. The policy of the school is one calculated to invite growth on ini- 
tiative, self-direction and thoroughness to the ends of teaching. 

The school makes no charge for tuition to residents of Dunn County and 
all text books are furnished to students at a nominal rental.

The Dunn County School of Agriculture 
and Domestic Economy 

THIS school is favorably located near Stout Institute, the City High School, 
the County Training School and the Memorial Library of the City of Me- 
nomonie. The aim of the school is to serve the country boys and girls, the

the faculty. One member of the teaching force holds two weeks' courses in 
agriculture in different parts of the county for farmers and their families during 
tlie winter months. In summer he organizes dubs, in calf, pig, poultry, bee, 
corn, canning and grain projects and works on farms with the young people, 
as well as with the farmers who take projects under the Smith-Hughes Agri- 
cultural work. Other lines of extension work are testing milk and cream, testing 
soils, organizing cow testing associations, pure hred stock and grain associations, 
soil improvement associations, tile drainage work, aiding in selling pure hred 
stock and seeds, culling poultry Hocks, testing seed for germination and purity.

The Stout Institute 

MKXOMONTK also has. beside her county, public and parochial schools, 
The Stout Institute. This institution represents an investment of over 
s 1 .00(1. ()()() for buildings and equipment. It is a state institution devoted en- 
tirely to the preparation of teachers of Household and Industrial Arts. Its 
graduates have taught in nearly every state in the Union, in Porto Rica and 
in Canada. 

The school had its inception in September 1890, when the late Senator 
J. II. Stout in an arrangement with the school board agreed to build a Manual 
Training building where the present Industrial Arts building now stands. In 
1897 the school buildings were destroyed by fire. New ones were immediately 

In 1908 the school was incorporated and became The Stout Institute. Alter 
Mr. StOUt's death the property was taken over by the state. There are now 
four buildings in the group; the Industrial Arts Building, Trades Building, House 
hold Arts Building and the Gymnasium and Natatorium. Besides there art- 
two dormitories for "iris, a practice Homemakers' cottage and an Infirmary. 

The Stout Institute <>tTer> two year, three year and four year courses in both 
schools. In the four vear course, graduates receive the Degree of Bachelor of 
Science in Industrial Arts or Household Arts according to the school in which 
the work is taken; graduates of the three year course receive the professional 
diploma; graduates of the two year course receive a certificate. The diploma, 
and in some states the Certificate, form the l>asis for the issuance of a teaching 
license. In Wisconsin a license i> issued and is for one year. This is renewable 
for another year. After these two years of successful teaching, a life certificate 
is issued. 

The enrollment of The Stout Institute has increased rapidly following the 
war period, and beginning with the summer session of 1921 it has operated on 
a I.") week year. With the usual holiday vacation ami a short reces> between 
the regular and summer sessions thi> virtually keeps the school open the entire
